Cleveland Browns Leadership falling into place

I apologize to my bosses, and all my fans in the stands.  I have not written an article in a few weeks. As much as I would like to say I was on strike until The Browns changed leadership I would be lying. The truth is I am a newlywed and I have a new baby and a new job, so I have been busy. Back to football. New owner in Jimmy Haslam, I love him. I have already stated that I love...

Heckert on difference between Browns and Colts

Tom Heckert had a statement released by the Browns today, but he also spoke to WKNR’s Tony Grossi and gave this little nugget. “The difference between us and the Colts is the Colts won the close games and we didn’t,” Heckert said. “We’ve proved we can play with anybody. I think the outlook is awesome.” In many ways Heckert’s right, but if you look a little bit deeper...

Banner on Heckert: “we have the same priorities”

Why won’t Tom Heckert comment on his relationship with Joe Banner?

Maybe it’s nothing more than a bit odd, but it’s at least that. The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot quotes Tom Heckert and (as best we can tell) at least one “league source” as well as a separate “league insider” in a piece titled, “Cleveland Browns GM Tom Heckert acknowledges uncertain futures, stresses focus on winning.” Cabot quotes “a source” as saying that...

Tom Heckert calls Josh Gordon “eventual starter”

Most people in the comments seem satisfied with the risk level that the Browns took today in selecting Josh Gordon with a 2013 second round pick by way of the supplemental NFL draft. Gordon, like current Browns receiver Greg Little, has had an idle year before entering the NFL. Maybe that is why when Tom Heckert spoke to the media today after the pick, he referred to Gordon as an...
